De Zoete Inval, meaning a sweet falling is a family winery with a big reputation for doing things our own way! The estate is located at the base of the Paarl valley on the banks of the berg river in southern Paarl in the valley frost pocket,ensuring cold winters, which is critical for the production of quality wines. coupled with the cold winters we have hot dry summers, which are perfect for the ripening of grapes. De Zoete Inval is a windy place, which helps to reduce the disease pressure in our vineyards as the south wind whips through and keeps mildew at bay. The growth of our vineyards and resultant yields are kept in check by our sandy marginal soils which consistently deliver ripe, well balanced fruit.
The marginal soils tend to produce lower alcohol wines with more finesse and exhibit less fruit and greater terroir expression.
All these factors culminate in unique,singular character wines which have the ability to age well.
